The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) says a 2021 Policy meeting with education stakeholders to discuss critical issues on admissions processes into tertiary institutions is in the works.

The board made this known in its Weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar on Monday in Abuja.

It said critical issues emanating from the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) would also be discussed.

“The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has approved Tuesday, August 31 for the 2021 policy meeting.

“The meeting will be chaired by the minister and will have all Heads of Tertiary Institutions as well as Heads of Regulatory Agencies in the sector, and other critical stakeholders present.

The board said that the meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on acceptable minimum admissions standards to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions.

It said the meeting would be streamed live on the board’s website, www.jamb.gov.ng, on its Facebook handle, @JAMBULLETIN, and its other social media platforms.

JAMB also noted that it was an abuse of process for any institution to commence any admission exercise before the meeting as that was the only forum that gave authorization for admissions.
